A juice fast is a holistic state of being. As you feast on raw juices, focus your mind on the intent of the detox, to cleanse and repair the body and mind. The body is unable to move or function without the direction of the mind, for the mind governs the body. A holistic mind and body cleansing is to create good health, harmonious balance and for our authentic purpose to illuminate from within. The illumination is the light of your spirit. Through the cleansing process, you are able to remove the toxic weight that camouflaged your inner glow.
What do I mean? The detox enables the digestive system to shut down for a moment to rest, quieting the body for the purpose of focusing on the healing and the nurturing of self. The raw juice provides the body with the enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients to strengthen, replenish and heal. As you heal and cleanse the body, you must not forget about your state of mind. The mind needs a moment to heal too. At this time during the detox, you should focus on positive healing thoughts and refrain from toxic thoughts and toxic talk to manifest the changes you wish to see and become.
When you purge the entire body of toxins you begin to feel revitalized, energetic, and youthful. As you cleanse yourself, you are taking care of the house that nurtures the spirit. When this house no longer operates the spirit leaves. Since you are only here on this planet for a moment, heal and protect your body, this is your home.
Exercise is also a key component to the detox, depending on your athletic capabilities, one should do some form of workout. Whether you do a yoga practice, a walk, an easy run or another form of activity, you should engage in the physical action to further detoxify the body through the sweat glands. When you engage in any physical activity, please be conscious of your body, do not over exert yourself and be mindful of the warning signs when the activity level is too much. A detox experience should not be harsh; instead, the experience should be peaceful and enlightening. This is a healing journey. Only you know the enhancements you are seeking; and the toxins you want to dispel.
Further your cleanse by looking at the wholesomeness of who you are and accept without measurement all of your goodness. My approach is through meditation, I am able to tap in and listen to my inner light without measuring myself according to the standards and beliefs of my community and society. When in that state of being, I am able to feel relaxed, appreciative of who I am and the abilities I have to heal and nurture me. May you appreciate the lovely you. Enjoy~
